Officers
 
Who is an Officer?

Officers are responsible for coordinating the work of the forums of the conference. Except from the Secretary General, the President and Deputy President of the General Assembly, there are two Officers (also known as Chairs) in every Committee / Commission / Council. They are all Senior High School students with previous MUN experience. They are selected after a rigid selection process and trained prior to the conference.

Dear Student,

If you wish to apply for a Officer position at TMUN 2017, here you will find all the necessary information. Please take the time to read the content of this page, as there are certain points that require particular attention. It goes without saying that the deadline for application should be strictly adhered to.

A few things you should know before applying...

a. A Officer position is a position of great responsibility especially, towards the participating delegates. The performance of the Officers shapes the image of the conference and the MUN-experience of the delegates as a whole. It is a challenging experience which requires preparation, enthusiasm and the correct attitude!
b. Previous MUN (or equivalent) experience and an excellent command of English are demanded of all applicants.
c. The selection process is based on a personal interview conducted by the Organising Team.
d. After this process, the members of the Officers Team are announced.
e. The selected Officers are required to attend a number of preparatory meetings before the conference. The scheduling of these workshops is finalised in consultation with the Officers.

If you think you are unable to take up such responsibilities, you might want to reconsider your decision to apply.
